“Lord Jesus, I trust in You.”
During this Pascal Octave, I have started praying the Novena of Divine Mercy. God’s Mercy is infinite, the only condition we need to discover it is that we trust in Him.
Thanks be to God, I participated the Easter Vigil this year with Stella Maris People. We arrived on Saturday afternoon and had sharing moments in group and in family.
By the time of the Vesper, we had decided to do the readings in different languages and shared them among ourselves. This meant that the readings and psalms were in Greek, Hebrew, Italian, Spanish, Chinese, Finnish, Swedish, English and Tagalog. It gave us an amazing feeling of being the Universal Church and experiencing a new Pentecost!
After the Vigil, we shared some experiences, songs and pastries.
Christus Resurrexit! Christ is risen!
Is there any way to hide a mountain under a cloth or an elephant into a fridge? Of course, there are cases, if the cloth or the fridge is big enough or the mountain or the elephant is small enough. But these situations would not have happened without conditions.
In my observation, in our modern days, we are trying to hide a mountain every day. Which mountain am I talking about? The Love of God.
I took part in the vigil at Stella Maris on Saturday, on the Eve of Pentecost Sunday, and the first reading drew my attention:
It has been said that human communication is not very efficient, that listeners only get few per cent of the original message transmitted by the talker. But languages are also tools to proclaim and unite people.
